Friends with Flair at the Unity Stamp Co blog

I really should try and do more challenges, it always gives me shot of creative muse.  This card will be entered in the  Friday's challenge to make a card using their stamps.

Because I have been working on projects here in the house, you know painting, fixing and yes still doing some unpacking after six years I haven't had much time to make my cards or do other creative paper projects.   This is the longest time in one house where I have not finished things quickly and it is really starting to grind on my nerves.  One is always more creative when ones surroundings are finished, or at least it is for me.  So I have had to put aside my addiction to stamping and all things paper and get busy with house projects.  Soon it will be gardening time, well a few months yet away but one needs to be thinking ahead on these things as time just disappears in the blink of an eye or so it seems.

This past week while working on doing the decorations for a baby shower I ran across this beautiful aged paper.  It just struck me how perfect it would be for some Unity Stamps I had.  I usually only use the portion of the many beautiful papers I have for just an accent on the front of a card and had never covered the front of a card fully with printed papers.  But this one called to me.

I stamped directly on the papers with the bird house from the Unity Stamp Set "Free to Be" and then embossed it in gold.  I loved it.  Next I stamped with distress stains using the bird flying stamp from the same set and cut it out.
